Closing Reception for "Aging Beyond Modernism" & Artist Talk by Kim Rae Taylor
"Portrait of Alma Thomas" by Kim Rae Taylor, acrylic paint
Join us for the closing reception of “Aging Beyond Modernism” and hear artist Kim Rae Taylor speak about this body of work.
Aging Beyond Modernism is a solo exhibition by local artist Kim Rae Taylor, of portraits documenting many of the women who were an integral part of the art and literary avant-garde in Europe and the U.S. during the early decades of the twentieth century. Through the lens of gender and aging, Taylor looks at the longevity of many of these women, capturing them as they looked as the elderly women they became.
While the numerous “-isms” of twentieth-century Modernism are primarily identified with men, women were a vital, often overlooked force as artists, writers, performers, and art collectors. Often when their lives are examined, it’s specifically within the framework of Modernism, overlooking the work created in the latter part of their lives. The ongoing project serves as a visual extension of Taylor’s research of women artists in the modernist era, their creative development as they grew older, and their personal attitudes about aging itself. To date there are 40 portraits in the series and the project’s main purpose is educational. Paintings will be presented along with biographical information about each woman.
Artist Talk begins at 6:30pm. Celebration of the closing reception is from 6-8pm.
